MATCHDAY QUOTES

"The biggest problem is that they have got too used to losing,

"They have continually been under the hammer and I have not made it particularly easy for them. But they deserve a little bit of credit today.

โ€œYou can't keep on bashing people for ever.

โ€œ[But] I do think they have been trying to run before they can walk.

โ€If things go wrong they tend to run all over the place trying to put it right.

'They want to play their football before they have got their basics right.

โ€œBut all I want to see is the shape of the team right first."

Graham Taylor.
